Creative Director, Crafts Council
I am creative director at the Crafts Council where I direct our exhibitions, international shows, innovation and education programmes, as well as research and policy. I’ve worked in the creative sector throughout my career starting out at the Crafts Council of Ireland, followed by a spell in publishing, then launching a digital business, now back in a creative role. At different stages of my career, I’ve worked for big firms and small, for the private sector and public agencies, and as a freelancer. I’m happy to share advice and experience on the arts and creative industries and the brilliance of a philosophy degree as grounding for life.
